Alright my girlfriend just got an xbox and she has everything set up, but she cant connect to live because a text pops up that says that it requires an update but she said that it has said that 5 times....


The easiest way to update your console software is to connect to Xbox LIVE. To update your console by using Xbox LIVE, all you need is an Internet connection.
  1. Connect your Xbox 360 console to the Internet. To learn how, please see How to connect to Xbox LIVE.
  2. On the console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
  3. Select Network Settings.
  4. Select Wired Network or the name of your wireless network, if you are prompted to do so.
  5. Select Test Xbox LIVE Connection.
  6. Select Yes if you are prompted to update the console software.

If you receive a connection error, try using the Xbox LIVE Connect Solution.

Console update did not install successfully?


If her system says that she needs an update then likely her connection should be getting to Live. You might need to clear her cache first and then try the steps above. Here is how you will clear your cache:


To clear the system cache

  1. Go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
  2. Select Memory.
  3. Highlight any storage device, and then press Y on your controller.
    (It doesn't matter which storage device you select; the cache will be cleared for all storage devices.)
  4. Select Clear System Cache.
  5. When prompted to confirm storage device maintenance, select Yes:

Wont let xbox live update i checked connection and it was fine


If your Xbox 360 console is connected to the Internet through a router or gateway (as opposed to through a direct modem connection), try connecting the console directly to the modem. Here's how:

  1. Plug one end of a network cable into the back of your Xbox 360 console and the other end into your modem.
  2. On the console, sign in to Xbox LIVE and start the game.
  3. Choose to download the game update.

If you can download game updates when the Xbox 360 console is connected directly to the modem, there might be a problem with your router or gateway configuration.

Cheers!!

When i load a game on my ps3 it starts fine then in game it wont let me open doors etc. so i am stuck in an area. then when i try to switch it off it wont shut down. is there a prob with the laser


It would be helpful to know which game you are talking about...

But in general I can recommend you:
- connect PS3 to the internet
- sign in to PSN
- update firmware (system update)
- launch game and see if it has any updates

My ps3 tries to upade when i turn it on but fails


make sure the console is connected to an active internet connection, wired ifs fasted but wireless is fine, it will just be a little slower to download the update

if it asks you if you want to install the update say no, and check all conections, phisically and check using the network connection settings in the setting menu

try to manually activate the updater while in the main manu your self instead of an automatic update

Xbox live connection problem


Well depending on when you were trying they may have passed but the amount of information that was trying to run through your internet may not have been able to go through so in turn that may be the cause is your internet, if that is not the case and you have restarted the modem and everything I would call 1 800 4 MY XBOX and get some help with the xbox live they are very helpful.
